So, all of the sleeping books recommend putting your baby down "drowsy but awake."
Is my baby the only one that won't go to sleep this way?
I have been trying to do this for one nap a day and also at night. It doesn't seem to work with Will.
It starts out okay, in that he will lay there for a few minutes, sometimes fussing a bit or even completelyquiet. But as time goes by. . . the fussing starts and then escalates into full-fledged crying. Right now, I am staring at the monitor which has five green lights on it. I am okay if his fussing is at the one or two green light stage. When it gets to three, I start getting a bit nervous. When it is at four. . . excuse me while I go pick up and comfort my son, will you?
Okay, I am back. For the fifteenth time. The nursery is literally two steps from the office where I am typing.
The bars are already at five.
Crap. Drowsy but awake, my arse.
